I finally got to visit the Basquiat and Schiele exhibitions at Fondation Louis Vuitton. I was really looking forward to see Schiele’s works, but unfortunately I got very disappointed by the setting; very dim lighting and weirdly dark walls which made it very difficult to enjoy. The Basquiat part on the other hand was not bad at all. I wasn’t in the mood to study all the political aspects in the paintings but even with a quick browsing I was very aesthetically pleased.

Different perspectives on female beauty in different types of art. And a tip if you are visiting Paris, there is currently a Irving Penn exhibition in Grand Palais, it wasn’t the greatest one but in any case I spotted few gems.
